Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Hi, im Glenn.
I was wondering, my ps2 is kinda broken. ya see, when i dont play the ps2 for a whole day then play it the next day it works for about 27 minutes. then the disc stops and makes noises. the powers still on and the games running but it stalls then and i hav to reset my ps2.but after playing for the 27 minutes i hav to wait another couple of hours for it to play again for abou 27 minutes.
I would be grateful if u could help.
Thanks a lot,
There is a little wheel type thing that the cd sits on when it goes into the drive, the wheel makes the cd spin, these often wear out , after you play it for 27 mins the device heats up which causes it to slip , which would most likely be the noise that you can hear , it wont cost you much at all to get this fixed at a game console service store, if your sure the cd is still spinning after 27 mins , and making the noise , it is the laser cog slipping , in this case it is best to replace the whole laser section, which is one part , and if your handy at things like that i suggest you just go and buy the laser reader from a game console repair store , and swap it over your self , it is pritty simple to do ,
